Writ Summoning Representatives of Seven Boroughs.

1235. (Latin text in Close Rolls, 1234–1237, p. 161. Translation by the editor.)

The king to his bailiffs of the port of Dover, greeting. We command you, firmly enjoining that you cause twelve of the better men of your town to come before us at Dover on the Sunday next after the coming feast of the Purification of the Blessed Mary, for the purpose of speaking with us concerning our affairs. Witness the king at Westminster, the twenty-fifth day of January.

In the same way it was commanded the bailiffs of the ports of Hythe, sandwich, and Hastings concerning the sending of six there; Romney, Rye, and Winchelsea concerning eighteen.2

2 It is not clear whether Hythe, Sandwich, and Hastings were to send six each or six together; and Romney, Rye, and Winchelsea eighteen each or eighteen together.
